November 2019
' Tis is the season to give thanks and appreciate those who have helped us along the way. October marked the momentous occasion when the Autism CARES Act was signed into law and MyGOAL's Dr. Kumapley was on hand at the press conference by US Senator Bob Menendez to celebrate its passage!

MyGOAL's 11th Annual Gala was a big success that would have been impossible without the support of our sponsors, donors, volunteers, families, and supporters. A BIG Thank You to All of You!
MyGOAL is welcoming fall in a big way! Check out the Fall Festival this weekend, our monthly support group session, our upcoming holiday party, and many other events right around the corner!
